Military Family Resources
Here at EOC we have resources and activities that our military-connected students may find interesting and applicable to them.
The Patriot Kids Club supports and encourages the academic success of the military child. They meet once a month by grade level. Through this club, Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts provides military students and their families with tools necessary for:
- An easy transition into a new school environment
- Familiarity with their new community
- Networking with other Eastover-Central military students and families
- Support during deployments
- School Counselor & Military Point of Contact:
Name: Jennifer Butler
Times Available: Mondays – Friday (8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.)
Professional school counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a Master’s degree in school counseling making them uniquely qualified to address students’ cognitive, socio-emotional, and career development needs by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. They also provide consultation, individual and group counseling, and academic advisement. In addition, they provide prevention, crisis intervention, and conflict resolution.
- CCS Military Family & Youth Liaison:
Name: Howard Latimore
The military family and youth liaison (MFYL) acts as a communication link between the installation and the school district in order to ease the transition for the military students. The MFYL coordinates and supports efforts to: assess needs, build awareness of resources, and connect those with needs to supportive solutions.
Military-affiliated families may gain more information, as well as additional resources, through accessing the district’s Military Connection webpage using the following link: CCS Military Connections
